The title of King of Ashenia dates back to before the Cataclysm. Following the destruction of the old capital at Redrisakand and the extinction of the royal family there was a power struggle between the various noble houses, culminating in the succession of the House of Toranath as recognised monarchs.
Over their long years as rulers, the kings of Ashenia have amassed a number of subsidiary titles. The full style of the King of Ashenia is:
"King of Ashenia, Prince of Eseda, Prince of Kyaralath, Prince of Ascalaine, Castellan of Adrakand, Castellan of Misakand, Lord of Lacertia, Lord of the Anvale, Lord of Intepeuh and Miaralan"
House of ShenathEdit

Names of later rulers of the House of Shenath are not known. It is presumed this house was the ruling family in Redrisakand destroyed by the Cataclysm.
